Steam and an organization called Games to Grunts have put together a deal for veterans of both the military of Canada and the United States. Although the announcement specifically refers to American veterans only, the parent company, Operation Supply Drop's website and sign-up page allows Canadian veterans the ability to get free games, too.

The official announcement states:

Studies have shown that video games help Veterans recover from some mental health challenges, providing an escape while boosting confidence, personal growth, leadership, and social connections.

Operation Supply Drop’s Games to Grunts program supports community engagement to Veterans, military, and their families through video games. Most of the games they offer are on Steam, such as TEKKEN 7, Cooking Simulator, and Vietnam 65′, but other platforms are also available, like free XBOX Game Passes. All of the games are available through digital download codes.

First come, first serve

Game publishers and others donate game keys to Games to Grunts, which in turn distributes the games. Because not all games are distributed with unlimited keys, it is a first come first serve model.

Eligibility is determined through ID.me, a third-party identify verification service that is also available to use on VA.gov.

To sign up, visit the Games to Grunts website and create an account,  or view the full list of games available.


If you are a Canadian, veteran, the page will use a third-party Canadian organization to verify your veteran status.

From what I understand from the information available, the games for each platform differ from month to month and are limited in quantity. The titles and number available are at the discretion of the various companies which cooperate with Operation Supply Drop's efforts.
